Animal physiotherapy also known as veterinary physiotherapy aims to promote, maintain and restore mobility, function, independence and performance. Evidence now supports the use of physiotherapy alongside medical and surgical treatment of a broad spectrum of orthopaedic, neurological, musculoskeletal and cardiovascular conditions. Physiotherapy aims to maximise and restore your animals wellbeing following an injury or incident. It can also help to maintain fitness in the older animal or one with a degenerative condition.
A physiotherapy appointment may consist of a full check of your animals muscle and joint condition. Appropriate treatment can then be provided as well as a prescribed exercise program which together aims to achieve your treatment goals.
